Phone-Stacking Craze Teaches Dinner Etiquette
I think this is a great idea! How many times have you been out with a group for dinner and at some point every single person has their head down looking at their phone? Have you or will ever try this?
When you grab a bite to eat with friends do you have a problem turning off the urge to digitally connect even though you’re actually with your friends? You’re not alone. A lot of people complain that their friends, and even they, are guilty of only half-listening to the person they’re interacting with because they find it hard to detach from social networking.
Well one blogger might have the solution for you. Brian Perez, who goes by the name “Lil-b” on Tumblr, has created a game called the Phone Stack. The game is quickly taking over as a new dining trend. Here are the rules: When everybody arrives and sits down to eat, each person places his or her phone face-down or stacks it on a pile in the middle of the table. The first person to look at his or her phone has to pay the bill. If the bill comes before any phones are checked, everyone wins and pays for their own meal.
